The ProRodeo Hall of Fame’s “Name the Colt” contest kicks off Friday, June 1.

The Rodeo Livestock Exhibit opened May 24 with three horses from the Harry Vold Rodeo Company, Beaver Tail, her foal and Painted Fling.

Beaver Tail gave birth May 15 to a colt. With the baby on the property, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame will be running a “Name the Colt” contest with the museum guests this summer to name the newborn.

The contest officially begins June 1 and ends July 31. All names submitted will be reviewed by a panel of judges to determine the Top 5 Names. The Class of 2018 Inductees will select the winner from the list of Top 5 submissions. The winner of the contest and his/her winning name will be announced at the Induction Ceremony on Saturday, August 4.

Winner of the contest will receive a ProRodeo Hall of Fame merchandise package, a gift certificate to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame Gift Shop and a gift card to ProRodeoGear.com. Total value of prize package is just over $200.

Beaver Tail has been bucked as a bareback and saddle bronc horse and bucked off several cowboys at large rodeos including Prescott, Ariz., and Cheyenne, Wyo. Beaver Tail’s first colt 6V Pillow Talk became a three-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo bucking horse.

Painted Fling’s sire is Painted Valley, the 2010 PRCA Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year. Painted Fling will turn 5 years old in August and has never been bucked. His dam is a horse cloned from Spring Fling, owned by Don Hutsell, and a 2014 ProRodeo Hall of Fame inducted bucking horse. The cloned Spring Fling mare is owned by Milt Bradford.

The official rules of the contest are as follows:
Contest is open to all ProRodeo Hall of Fame guests with admission. One entry per person. Names cannot be submitted by any other means other than by visiting the museum with admission. No entries will be accepted via social media, email, phone, mail, etc. Employees of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association are not eligible for the contest. All names submitted will be reviewed by a panel of judges to determine the Top 5 Names. The Class of 2018 Inductees will select the winner from the list of Top 5 submissions. If more than one person suggests the same name and that name is declared the winner, the person who submitted it first by date will be named the winner.
